The aim of the Health Academy is to work with Indigenous secondary school students and their families to build understanding about university health career pathways and requirements. Students attend the Monash University simulation labs and the local hospital with an Aboriginal academic and Elders. In a culturally safe and friendly environment students meet health professionals and experience hands on activities, such as, plastering, taking blood and more.
